How Do I Add a New Restaurant or Vendor?

Adding a new restaurant is easy! For the sake of format continuity, we ask that you use our template and follow the steps below.

1. If you've checked the city where the restaurant is located and it doesn't appear there, you can start by looking at the side bar at the right for the box that says Add a New Page.

2. Type the name of the restaurant followed by the name of the city or the city's abbreviation. So for example, if you were adding Millennium, you would type "Millennium SF" or "Millennium San Francisco." Make sure you spell it correctly, and then click new page.

3. On the Create page you should change the title to the format "Restaurant Name (City, State/Country)".

4. In the drop-down menu that says "Initial Content" you'll need to choose the template called "New Restaurant.

5. Within the template it should be obvious which parts you should fill in:

  • The name of the restaurant
  • The type (vegan/vegetarian/vegan-friendly)
  • A description from the website.
  • Link to its reviews on Yelp.
  • Link to its Veg-Table reviews (this page can be created later)
  • Their contact website, phone #, email address if applicable.
  • A url to photos of food/decor of the restaurant if you have access. Please only use photos you've taken yourself or have permission to link to. Include your username if you took the photo.

6. Preview and save your changes. You can always go back and edit, or add more information later.

7. Go back to the page for the city where this restaurant is located. Edit the city page to include a link to the restaurant you've just added. If the city is not listed, click here to learn how to add a new city.
